The Governess to Start in January?

12/24/2008 12:01:00 AM
I just saw the tiniest of tiny blurbs on JLo's upcoming movie The Governess (here). It wasn't really even a blurb. It was a two sentences within a blurb. According to those sentences, filming will start "next month" which I'm assuming means January since the article was from 12/15.

It could be awhile before Southie gets to see "What Doesn't Kill You," the fine first film by favorite son Brian Goodman. The distribution division of Yari Film Group, which produced the movie starring Mark Ruffalo and Ethan Hawke, has been forced into involuntary bankruptcy. The action, which company CEO Bob Yari attributed to a "perfect storm" of financial factors, casts doubt on the future of "What Doesn't Kill You," which was released Friday in LA and New York. Yari Film Group is also producing "The Governess," which was supposed to start shooting with Jennifer Lopez next month in Boston. Yari said in a statement that his company's distribution and production arms are distinct, and work on "The Governess" is going forward as planned. Goodman, who grew up in South Boston, spent several years trying to make "What Doesn't Kill You," an autobiographical tale of two boyhood friends who become small-time crooks. Well received by critics at the Toronto International Film Festival, the film screened in LA and New York for awards consideration. Goodman did not a return a phone call yesterday.
